Overview

Seeking to provide a basic guide to issues of renal disease and hypertension, this pocket guide includes many of the conditions generalists will encounter in practice. The guide is patient-focused, beginning with advice on approaching patients with renal disease, including information on structures, evaluation of function, and the nephrotic syndrome. It then covers diagnosis and treatment of glomerular and tubulointerstitial diseases, vasculitis, disorders of water and electrolytes, acid-base regulation, disease of the urinary collection system and bladder, issues specific to hypertension, drug use in hypertension and renal disease, and diagnosis and management of renal failure. The editors have updated this edition to include a new section on drug treatment and a chapter on the management of anemia, and increased attention to hypertension, prevention of progressive vascular disease, and new treatment algorithms, flowcharts and diagnostic trees.
